The Starck Biotech Paris SPHERE hinge is a minimalistic way to imagine eyewear, due to a simplified yet uniquely effective structure.
“SPHERE draws inspiration from nature’s infinite intelligence. The sphere is the purest and most solid structure in the world: minimal perfection, essential beauty" Philippe Starck.
Made up of a 0,07g steel ball inserted into an injected front, SPHERE is paired with a 0.8mm titanium temple offering a multidirectional freedom of movement. Its conception avoids varnishing or additional mechanical operations, substantially reducing the environmental impact. Achieving only 12g, the eyewear brings a unique comfort.
